Wishing you season’s greetings and happy new year

Dear friends of IC2A,

Thank you so much to all of you for contributing to making life for amputees better during this year. It is major milestone that the WHO World Standards for Prosthetics and Orthotics have been agreed. That gives us, every one of us, in our home countries, a tool to use to improve access to appropriate, high quality prosthetic service and components. I encourage you all to use it.  Please get in touch with us in IC2A if you we can help.

My colleagues and I in IC2A wish you and yours a very happy festive season with family and friends and a very happy new year.

Together we are stronger.

Best wishes,


Dr. Nils-Odd Tønnevold

President, International Confederation of Amputee Associations (IC2A)
